Its really sad that people are picking Steam over the actual game. Games like Mass Effect 3 and BF3 which will have amazing gameplay, story(only ME3) and multiplayer (only BF3) are being sacrificed so you can stay loyal to steam.. someone already said that Origin doesn't even run in the background. You people are just doing this cause you hate EA. Blizzard isn't on Steam is it? Look at their sales. You people will get Origin and EA knows this because of their awesome exclusives.
